    Hello, Bike Forum

    I'm doing this backwards, since I've already asked for help (great replies all) on the Classic and Vintage Forum. Anyway, I live in Alexandria, Va, ride a 1980 Schwinn Continental converted to single speed. Since around December I've been trying to commute to work a couple of days a week. I've only been riding regularly for about the last year or so, but it's been good for my soul.

    I know I must have already said hi, but it never hurts to say it again!

    Hey Tom,

    Do you commute downtown DC or someplace else?

    I live in Kingstowne and commute a couple times a week to DC and back.

    Nothing like commuting to make work mentally easier.
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Someplace else -- I live in Old Town and commute to Seminary Road/Beauregard Street (the Mark Center area).

    Welcome!

    I'm the proud new owner of a Schwinn Continental myself.

    It may end up a SS...

    I absolutely agree that biking is great for the soul!
    May you live long, live strong, and live happy!
